Although the results are not what we had hoped for, I am
incredibly happy with our campaign and what we accomplished.
As a 21 year old college student who self-financed most of
the campaign, I am happy with the job we did and the campaign we ran.
I want to thank everyone including family, friends, and my
neighbours in Ward 4, it was an honour and privilege to run and share my vision
I’m looking forward to seeing what Ajax Council does in the
next term of office and truly wish Councillor Pat Brown all the best in
representing Ward 4 for another term.
I’m incredibly happy to see some of my friends get elected
or re-elected tonight.
In Pickering, Mayor Ryan was given a strong mandate to
continue leading Pickering.
Ward 1 re-elected Councillor Kevin Ashe, who is a fair and
reasonable voice at a sometimes-raucous council meetings.
In Ward 3, It was great to finally see Peter Rodrigues
defeated. Peter was an incredibly negative candidate and deserved to be
un-seated. Councillor David Pickles will do a much better job representing Ward
3. Dave is a professional who has years of experience. Ward 3 also spoke loud
and clear as they returned Rick Johnson to council. Rick is a fighter for Ward
3 and always has been.
It was sad to see Deputy Mayor Doug Dickerson get defeated
last night. Doug has always been there for advice and I’ve always relied
heavily on his wisdom.
In Whitby, it’s good to see Don Mitchell, Lorne Coe, Liz
Roy, Joe Drumm all elected. A strong team from Whitby.
